It seems I have less and less time to write posts these days but I am working on a few things. I received the little Calvinist apologetic The Five Dilemmas of Calvinism , by Craig Brown, for Christmas. It was recommended to me by a Calvinist and the reviews at Amazon were very good. I have not finished the book but what I have read so far seems to me to be some of the worst Calvinist apologetics in print. Hopefully it will get better. When I finish the book I will do a few posts on some of Brown’s arguments.
I am also working on another post concerning provisional atonement and a post dealing with the subject of the reality and/or illusion of “choice”. I hope to have at least one of these posts completed and up by the weekend. In the mean time I want to direct you to some very interesting posts by a four point Calvinist regarding Roger Nicole’s arguments for limited atonement against the actual writings of John Calvin. It gets to the heart of whether or not we are justified to interpret “all” as “some among all” in universal passages like 1 Tim. 2:3-6.
I also want to direct you to an article by JCT in response to Steve Camp’s arguments for infant damnation.
Also, there have been many articles added in the side bar (to the right) over the last few weeks. There are some new articles under most headings (e.g. Faith/Perseverance). Please look them over for any that may be of interest to you.
[Note: I have been corrected by the writer of the posts (linked to above) concerning Nicole and Calvin. The person who wrote those posts does not take the “L” in TULIP in the same way as the typical 5-point Calvinist, but prefers to not be called a 4-point Calvinist as he does still hold to limited atonement]
